One of the exciting gifts to thank God for is our priviledge to see His marvelous works of art through traveling! So since we were going home anyway, the cousin Meng and I decided to have a short visit to the cuisine capital of Asia – Singapore!
It was an 11 hour lay over via Singapore Airlines, braved a 7 hour flight from Dubai we landed at around 7:00am and got no idea where are we gonna’ go. Known our love for adventures, we were thrilled to just hop on a plane and land to a place we had never been to and just trust how the adventure ahead is going to be!
Amazed by how deserved Singapore Changi Airport is, being voted to be the World’s Best Airport for 4 consecutive years according to Annual Global Survey of Air Travelers 2016, we couldn’t contain how happy it made us to experience such H O S P I T A B L E Immigration Officers for the FIRST time in our traveling lives! I mean seriously, have you travelled to a place, started off very excitedly and all of a sudden felt like being conflicted because of how Immigration Officers behaves while checking on your passport? Not even a pinch of that I felt when we were in Singapore going through the entry. All smiles and warm welcome! Unbelievable!
With the help of Era and the friendly taxi drivers we met, we were able to visit 3 known sites of Singapore and positioned our lenses of investment to work.
MERLION PARK WITH MARINA BAY SANDS VIEW
GARDEN BY THE BAY
“For what the stamp is worth, we did not regret the inconvenience of hopping on and off the plane to experience other parts of the world.”
